Bill Nye The Science Guy- Electricity

Imagine a world where you couldn’t turn on a light, a computer, or even use the phone! Obviously, electricity is important to us! Can you imagine a day without electricity?How would your day be different?

A current of electricity is a steady flow of electrons. When electrons move from one place to another, round a circuit, they carry electrical energy from place to place like marching ants carrying leaves. Instead of carrying leaves, electrons carry a tiny amount of electric charge.
Watch the video below and tell me something you learned about electricity in the bubble beside the post! I am excited to read them.

Bill Nye Friction


Bill Nye – The Science Guy – Season 3 Episode… by Bill-Nye-The-Science
Force is just a fancy word for pushing or pulling. If I push on something or pull on it, then I am applying a force to it. Force makes things move or, more accurately, makes things change their motion.
Sir Isaac Newton was one of the first scientists to study gravity and force.

Beside this post is a comment bubble tell me something cool you learned about in the videos!
